Difference between Z50-70 models in terms of drivers

I just clean installed my Windows and started searching for my laptop drivers. I own a Lenovo Z50-70 laptop.

 

When I entered the support site I noticed 3 "versions" of my laptop.

 

Z50-70

Z50-70 - type 20354

Z50-70 - type 80E7

 

As I checked, the driver versions remain the same. So what is the difference between these versions?

 

Thanks!

Re: Difference between Z50-70 models in terms of drivers

If you just let the support site detect your laptop (Detect My Product), you will be insured that you get the right drivers.   Some models came with AMD or Intel CPU's, and different graphics cards etc.   Your model/type (MTM) should be shown on bottom label.    You can also use Lenovo System Update to automatically install the correct drivers for your system.

 

Cheers,

Thanks, but my question was regarding these models.

My model is the second one, but comparing the driver versions, it is the same as the simple Z50-70.

I was just wondering why they are separated in this case.

Different models may have different system configuration ( such as sound card, graphic card ) That's the main reason

Ran the Lenovo Update Utility and everything seems to be fine (no new drivers) even though I used the Z50-70 only version.

Bumping this just so I know I didn't mess up anything.
